Electric scooter rental services are quite common in larger European cities but dig a little deeper and you’ll find that they are deeply unpopular among many drivers. Inexperienced scooter riders without helmets accessing electric scooters from a few dollars has been a recipe for disaster and scooters can be found vandalised or destroyed across cities.
Luckily we also sell electric scooters to any country in the EU, with 3 days shipping and superb customer service.
To help you get to know the local laws for electric scooters and other small electric transportation we’ve setup a list where we sum up the laws per country.
The Netherlands; Illegal; Right now driving an electric scooter/step on the public road is illegal and can be fined. But we are working on legalising.
Germany; Legal; Driving an electric scooter is legal in Germany. The driver needs to be at least 14 years old and the maximum speed is 20 km/h.
France; Legal; As long as you keep to the ‘law’ and do not drive as an maniac. There is no law now so as the French would say; who can stop me!
Denmark; Legal; Driving electric scooters/steps are completely legal as long as you wear an helmet, have the lights on while driving and have an (yellow) reflective sticker on the side of the vehicle.
Belgium; Legal; Driving and electric scooter/step is legal as long as you drive no faster then 18km/h.
Spain; Legal; No problem. Take out your electric scooter and drink some cerveza, they don’t care.
